Access issues inherited from Ben Cairn
[As at 12 March 2018 Ben Cairn Road closed both ends due to landslip. Practically impossible to access].
From Melbourne take the Maroondah Highway to Healesville. Go through town, past the bridge, turn right at Don Rd and go 9.8km to a junction. Keep driving about 8km and the road becomes dirt. You pass a sign stating "Ben Cairn 1040m". Walk 5 minutes up the foot track to gain access to the crag.
Note: Both ends of Ben Cairn Road gated in winter. https://traffic.vicroads.vic.gov.au/ for further access information.
This might more accurately be described as the Left part of the cliff, because if you walk south along the top of the 'Main Cliff' you're above 'Pakenham Upper'. Anyway, the best access is probably to abseil in from the trees at the base of the scramble down just L of Raspberry Ripple. You can fairly quickly walk down either end of this section (at the north end start your descent at the base of Skating Away), but it's quite scrubby and surprisingly uneven underfoot.© (willmonks)
